Many developers have started using the events that are raised in Dynamics NAV, and some have even started adding events to their solutions. There is some concern that a subscription will break if the interface of an event is changed. As a developer, you can verify that the subscription is active by running page 9510, Event Subscriptions.

When I work with a subscription, I often apply the following code to extend the Event Subscriptions page.

I start by adding the table.

navblog_events1

Then, on the Event Subscriptions page, I add the following action.

navblog_events2

Lastly, I add three lines at the end of the OnAfterGetRecord function:

navblog_events3

Now, I can toggle a Gate Me flag on the page.

Normally, I would like a wake-up call when I start the client in case I introduced a breaking change. I do this by creating a subscriber to the OnAfterCompanyOpen event.

And yes, I do get this error from time to time.

How to write tests for event subscriptions

It is very simple to write a unit test for a subscription that has been added.

And by running the test tools, the test can be run like any other test.
